Subsea and Topsides Load Measuring

A powerful solution for energy.

We designed our first water-filled load bags in 1979, specifically to provide a safer, more cost-effective alternative to solid weights for testing on North Sea oil and gas installations.

At that time - when solid weights were still in general use - it cost over £1,000 per tonne to ship steel offshore. Since we came up with the water-filled solution, we estimate that the UK offshore industry has saved hundredsof millions of dollars in shipping, storage and labour costs.

WATER WEIGHTS® are used offshore for the following load test applications:

  • Cranes
  • Lifeboats
  • BOPs
  • Winches
  • Underdeck Pad Eyes
